I was surprised to find that The Archers’ storyline has become news. On Friday night the BBC radio news announced that the outcome of Helen and Rob’s trial would be announced on Sunday (tonight). Is this really news?
The programme will be one hour long and will feature some well-known actors and actresses. Is this really news?
Some of the real news over the summer has been more like fiction, but I don’t believe that fiction should be presented as news.
